I downloaded the install CD for Kubuntu Dapper. The install menu opened fine, and I selected install Kubuntu. It loaded stuff for a while, and *phuff*, suddenly the screen was full of garbage.
After some googling I found a page that suggested downloading the alternate CD in case installing fails. I did so, and the text-based install worked fine. When it was time to boot into the new installation, the same garbage appeared again.
I've tried some googling but I can't really find anything useful... Perhaps you could give me some ideas.
My machine is
AMD Athlon 64 3700+
1G of RAM
XFX's GeFore 6600-based PCI-E video card w/ 256M of memory
Asus A8N5X motherboard w/ nForce4
Thanks in advance
EDIT: I managed to boot into Kubuntu by selecting "Start Kubuntu in safe graphics mode" or something like that. However, this seems to be run from the CD. Is there any way I could use my installation on the hard drive in this mode?

I can't get to the command line when I boot up into the real installation. Any remedies for this?
